Super Bowl 35

Jan. 28, 2001

At Tampa, Fla.-71,921

Baltimore 7..3.14.10-34

N.Y. Giants 0..0..7..0-.7

The Ravens, led by Ray Lewis and one of the great defenses in NFL history, intercepted Kerry Collins four times and held New York to 152 yards. Baltimore's defense was so dominant that New York's offense never got inside the Ravens 29.

Ron Dixon's 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown kept the Ravens from the first shutout in a Super Bowl.

Trent Dilfer's 38-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Stokley and Matt Stover's 47-yard field goal game the Ravens a 10-0 halftime lead.

Duane Starks returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown, the first of three TDs on three plays late in the third quarter - none on offense. The other two were back-to-back kickoff returns by Dixon and Jermaine Lewis of Baltimore, the first time that's happened in a Super Bowl.

Jamal Lewis, who had 29 carries for 102 yards, added a 3-yard run in the fourth quarter and Stover finished the scoring with a 38-yard field goal.

The Ravens became the third wild-card team to win the Super Bowl. The victory gave 75-year-old Art Modell his first Super Bowl victory in 40 years as an owner.
